Obergurgl is located in the heart of the Ötztal nature reserve, making our town an ideal starting point for mountain adventures. Marked trails and paths – for alpine glacier tours, mountaineering adventures and leisurely hikes alike – lead through lush meadows, vast fields of alpine roses and heather, mountain pine forests or even the eternal ice of the Ötztal Glacier. Fly high at 3,000 metres above sea level, either by hiking up the mountains on your own two feet led by a qualified mountain guide, or via cable car or a dedicated hiking bus.
A truly breath-taking destination in every sense of the word is the Timmelsjoch mountain pass and the winding road leading to the top. Panoramic views beyond Austria’s borders open up at the summit of the pass, allowing you to leave the rest of the world far behind. Spend unforgettable summer days in crystal-clear mountain air and cooler temperatures, topped off by the impressive sight of the surrounding glaciers.
Lovers of the outdoors will not only find hikes here that will cleanse body, mind and soul, but also demanding full-body workouts, for example Europe’s highest Nordic High Walking Trail in Obergurgl. A holiday here definitely benefits your health and leaves you feeling thoroughly rejuvenated
